Kid rides his bike on the summer streets of an unknown western home
Stares straight into the pale black sky he never felt so alone
Running from reality that he is not somewhere
Crying at the stars at night who never seemed to care
Those city lights like cigarettes burn so far away
Out here in the darkness where the lonely sagebrush sway

Bonneville Backroads
Where you look so young but you feel so old

He says to his girl babe come on
We’ve got somewhere to be
Get on this greyhound to the life of opportunity
There's nothing here there's no jobs left
but my heart still beats inside my chest
Let's get out while were young
Our songs have not been sung


She kissed him in the glow of the main street neon sign
And said come on lets go we’ve only got our time
And as they passed the limits of where they used to be
Out there in the darkness they finally felt free
